Damage to Property Rented to You

What is Damage to Property Rented to You?

Damage to premises rented to you is a type of insurance coverage included in commercial general liability insurance. The term refers to liability protection for damage to a rented commercial property or space, such as a leased storefront. If a covered event, such as a fire, causes harm to the rented space, the policyholder may be protected against liability for the cost of repairs or replacement. This coverage is important for businesses that rely on a rented property, as it can help protect them from unexpected expenses and potential legal disputes. Without this coverage, a business that rents or leases a property could be liable for the cost of repairs or replacement of the rented space.
